  1. Recording Multiple Sessions

    to have the ability to record multiple sessions simultaneously. I often have two or more chapters to reduce the length of each podcast and just yesterday lost an entire 43 minute session by placing it in "Interview" while recording another. After I "thought" I successfully saved it as a MP3, I realized it did not save and now have to re-record it. Very frustrating experience.

  2. Able to record

    Hi,
    Can you please add recording from skype/zoom/facetime to Journalist?
    I work for a community radio station and produce the show from home so started Journalist trial. The show is with someone else but to do the show I need to record it via zoom and add it to the software.
    I was hoping I could record direct but seems only possible on Pro. If Journalist is for journalists and those like me who aren't professional and in need for Pro features but carry out joint projects, it would be great to add this feature.
    Can't justify the extra cost…

  3. Toggle solo / mute

    To quickly compare to versions, it would be nice to toggle with one click between soloed tracks. Quite common in other DAWs.
    Currently, you need at least to two clicks - solo track A, de-solo (or mute) track B. Plus stop if you want to avoid to hear two tracks simultaneously for a brief moment.

    A one-click toggle (cmd-click solo, for example) would let you focus on the difference in sound instead of fiddling with the buttons.

    A previous request by another user has been answered thus:
    "Option-click will now toggle mute and solo for all tracks. Included in 1.52.2110" …

  4. Marker Import

    I really would like to import markers off a .txt or .csv file format. At the moment you can only import from other Hindi-Projects and I LOVE editing in Hindenburg. Sometimes recordings happen in other Applications and id like to transfer markers over to Hindenburg as easily as I can do it with audio files

  5. Using Logitech MX Master 2S thumb wheel with Hindenburg Journalist

    The ability of using the thumb wheel would be a nice feature for scrolling the audio. However, currently the rolling of the thumb wheel of the Logitech MX Master 2S mouse only moves the scroll box on the scrollbar, while the waveform display stays at the same position.

    Maybe there is just a small setting to be reconfigured for this to work.

  6. Drag view / jump half screen

    When editing a track (cutting out unnecessary repetitions, breaths, and such) the playhead sweeps over the region to be cut out, so one must scroll back to get the relevant part in view. Doing this with the scrollbar at the bottom is not easy - dragging the slider is too fast, clicking on the empty part of the scrollbar is too slow.
    I see two good solutions to this problem which could be implemented simultaneously:
    1. Some key + mouse drag transforms the cursor into a hand (like Space in Adobe Photoshop, or the Hand tool in Acrobat Reader), and…

  7. Move all markers 10-15 seconds earlier

    USE CASE: Recording in-person customer interviews with your mobile app -- which is awesome by the way.

    PROBLEM: my customer says something great. I add a marker. When I play back the audio from the marker, I always have to go backwards 10-15 seconds, because I set the marker after I realize something great was said, not before it. :) I have to do that with every marker made with the mobile device.

    OPPORTUNITY: I believe you would be the only recording application which actually solves this problem for journalist, marketers and others.

    if you solve the problem I would…

  8. "Selection Mode"

    When first cutting a recorded interview, usually there is no need for selecting and dragging regions. The main activity is selecting areas for editing, splitting areas and cutting. However, the primary function of the mouse button is still the selecting of regions - you have to go to some empty place (often the only option is the thin area* separating two tracks) for the cursor to change into selection mode.

    So it would be very useful to have a shortcut (like SomeKey+mouse drag) to put the mouse cursor in selection mode, or even a dedicated Selection Mode, when only the…

  9. Export all markers as text file

    Dear Hindenburg staff,

    many thanks for your great product. I often use it while putting together pieces for German public radio.

    I have a very simple request. Would it be possible to make all markers exportable as text files, not just the chapter markers?

    I often use markers for notetaking. I know that you can find them in the nhsx-File, so I'm wondering how difficult it would be to export them directly in the software.

    Reaper, for example, can export its marker list as both txt and csv. Basically, at the moment, I listen to my recordings in Reaper, and…

  10. Reverse a section

    I play songs for broadcast that have sections with explicit language. Would be great if I could reverse those sections so the music could stay in key and on tempo.

  11. Improved Rehearse with loop and fixed focus

    I use the Rehearse function all the time, but setting the correct boundaries for the final cut often requires dozens of replays. It would be nice to have the option to specify a "post-roll" value, and have the Rehearse function loop endlessly through the selected area from pre-roll to post-roll.
    The other part of my suggestion concerns focus. While rehearsing, one fiddles with the boundary markers, so its gets a bit annoying when they get out of view while the playhead sweeps through. So an option to lock the view on any part of the audio (the selected area, or…

  12. Auto backup

    Provide the option for 'Auto-backup'. Include settings for how often you would like to save the session automatically.

  14. View > Cue Points

    The menu item View > Markers does not show Cue Points which is a pity. I propose inserting a new menu item View > Cue Points which shows a list of all cue points.

    Cue Points are tricky as you can have multiple versions of the same cue point at different places in the timeline.
    As Curpoint are related to the audio – then it will also move, copy, delte, tase …as the audio does. So having a Cue Markers list is a bit of a moving target.
    It’s possible to set and export other markers, if that is what is needed. You could for instance use the Chapter Markers and then export them as text.

  15. MacBook Pro Touch Bar Support

    I noticed that Journalist does not include support for the MBP Touch Bar. It might be useful to have some of the basic editing commands, record button, channel muting, or other options available using the interface.

    I realize this is only available to a small subset of overall users, so I understand it's not a priority.

  16. Allow an option to publish to Spreaker

    There is other services than Souncloud. Add Spreaker to publish will be great ;-)

  18. Detect and delete silence

    When working with separate tracks of several remote guests on a podcast or talk show it is essential to delete "silent" parts of the track when someone isn't talking. Sometimes these parts are not silent at all (because of a lot of background noise or leaking audio from headphones), but that makes it even more important to have them removed.

    I would like Hindi to be able to identify and insert breakpoints around these sections automatically and remove them upon request. That would make my life soooo much easier.

    We have been looking at how we can implement “delete silence” in Hindenburg. I think we should be able to come up with a solution for that in the near future.
    We have been working on some other features that touch the same area, with out latest Beta feature called “Magic Levels”.
    It’s a non destructive way of applying Side Chain Gate – so that mixing multiple recordings become very easy.
    No the same, I know – be it might help out in the situations where you are looking to reduce Bleed or Noisefloor.

  19. Stem Export

    Hi there. I really enjoy working with Hindenburg. One feature I would love to see is stem export. I do all my edits, tweak eq, compression and all that, but would like to export the stems of the project for archiving, as I delete my RAW files once a project is done.

    Thanks

  20. Text editor/scroller

    I would like a built-in basic text editor for writing a script that would then be saved automatically with the audio files for a particular project.
    It would be useful if the script could be scrolled across the screen autocue-style while recording in Hindenburg.
